Requesting your advice
1. The facade width increased from the original plan which resulted in a small windows ( highlighted in Red) , basically its a storage area in the garage. Does this look ugly or should i go for full window ? Sale consultant's reason for small window is to
hide things in the store room ?
2. Does the Arch design in the porch look odd and old design ? Thinking to go with rectangular design instead of arch ?
3. Have anyone got these type of wide windows ? Fixed in the middle and awning on the sides ? Does it look good ?

Note that this is my preference & everyone's taste will be different; but yeah, I'd remove the arch, to me it looks a bit odd … it looks kind-of Spanish Hacienda, which there's nothing wrong with except that nothing else on the house matches that.
But again; that's just my opinion.
There's nothing wrong with the appearance of those style of windows (the one in the linen area off the side of the garage looks a little unusual for the front of a house, but it doesn't offend me) … where do you live though? Those windows don't allow much airflow, if you're at all wanting to catch cool breezes they're not much good for that.

I am not a fan of the arch. I would square it off but raise it higher so not blocking any of the door.
We have an awning window and a sliding window in our bedroom. The awning window doesn't let much air in. Sliders are better for that. We have a large window in our house and they actually slide from the middle to both sides. Works great for breeze.
The small window in your storage area would work really well in that area as it would maximise space. I would probably just do some taller landscaping out the front of it.

I’d square off the arch and lower the front door so the front doors height matches the top of the windows.
The small window I’d delete and have a shrub/tree there (some form of landscaping anyway).
As someone else said, only my opinion and what I’d do, hopefully no one offended.
